The first player signed to a multi-year deal was waived.
Andy Pettitte (2 yrs/$13 per) by Kings of Arbitration. Therefore K of A will have only $259 instead of $260 in next year's auction.
This will be adjusted by adding $1 to the price of one of his keepers when the keepers are loaded, and then the $1 will be subtracted once the auction is completed.
(Edit: I am checking all the rosters now to see if I missed any...this caught my eye because he was picked up on waivers, in which...
Well, I see GHR714 picked up Kolb. There goes his WHIP and ERA. ;)
After 3 straight negative weeks by the Knights, the top of the standings is closer than it's been in 5 weeks.
Anybody out there?
I had to put Nick Johnson on the DL and pick up a FA. They system told me I had too many players -- 33 -- and the maximum was 32. (I had 23 active, 4 DL and 5 minors). So I dropped Durazo, with a salary of $4.
However, checking the rules:
(At least let's be in the right week! :lol: :D)
Damn...after being healthy for most of the season -- really only Benitez on the DL -- I'm now at 6 players on the DL: Benitez, Cesar Izturis, Nick Johnson, Ryan Church, Erubiel Durazo and Adam Eaton.
Like I said all year, I doubt by good luck will last... :( :-po'd-:
I am going to start fixing lineups tonight, adding real players for placeholders wherever possible...
The Auction will be on Friday, March 24th at 10pm.
Yes, 10pm is a little late, but with keepers we should still be done in 2-2.5 hours, plus it's a Friday. Also, after nominating that date, I found out I might have a meeting at 7pm that day, so instead of 9pm I am making it at 10pm.
If I find out the meeting is cancelled, I can switch it back to 9pm if that's better for people.
A few teams have not checked in, or not paid. If you would like to be in the league this year, please post your e-mail address here. Returning owners, get your money in ASAP. Invitations to expansion owners will go out as soon as I can...don't miss out. If you need me to re-send the invoice, let me know.
I am working on cleaning up our rules from last year. Some things that may be different from last year:
1) Waivers. We discussed it last year, they were supposed to be turned on, but it never happened. This year, there is a 3-day waiver period when a player is released. If a player is claimed off waivers, his salary stays the same if $10 or over; or is raised to $10 if it was $9 or less. If a player clears waivers, and becomes a free agent, his salary is $10. The initial waiver order is...
OK...the deadline to declare keepers is going to be March 18th at 11:59pm, which gives us just under a week before the auction (March 24th). It was going to be the 17th, but I figured people might be posting drunk that day. :)
Anyway, remember the rules:
Minimum of 7, Maximum of 12. List WHO you are keeping, his price last year, the contract length and the new salary. Such as:
Elliot Yamin ($5). 4 years, $21.
Kevin Covalis ($12), 1 year, $12.
(Those are not my keepers, they are...
One of you signed in as "The A Team v.2006".
You need to sign in with the same team name as your fantasy team name, or you will not get your players when I move the results over to the commissioner.com site.
Don't forget to check in for the auction, and pre-rank your players if you cant make it...
Only 8 teams have checked in -- if you don't check in, you will not get players.
Kings of Arbitration
have not checked in.
PLEASE print these out and keep it near you as we draft so you don't take anyone's keepers:
Keepers alphabetical first
Keepers by team, second
I just have to go back and do the dollar amounts...
For HHH - Your DH is "Place Holder" because your robot INSISTED on taking Jeff Francoeur. He is property of the A-Team as a minors keeper.
On Free For All Day, simply add a player and drop "Place Holder".
To everyone -- make sure I gave you all the right players.
FIRST: Players who have been kept:
Barfield, Josh (2B SD)
Barton, Daric (1B OAK)
Butler, Billy (1B KC)
Cain, Matt (SP SF)
Diamond, Thomas (P TEX)
Fielder, Prince (1B MIL)
Francoeur, Jeff (RF ATL)
Guzman, Joel (SS LA)
From the Sportsline site:
OPENING DAY IS APRIL 2, 2006
"FREE FOR ALL" DAY IS APRIL 1, 2006. THIS MEANS THAT NO FREE AGENTS MAY BE SIGNED AFTER THE AUCTION, UNTIL 12:01AM ON APRIL 1, 2006.
ANY TRANSACTIONS MADE PRIOR TO APRIL 1, 2006 WILL BE REVERSED BY THE COMMISSIONER(S).
You CAN NOT sign free agents until this weekend. All roster moves made before then are being reversed. See the league page for more info.
Kings of Arbitration
You must fix your rosters or score zero points.
HHH -- I dropped "Place Holder" for Jacque Jones (your original roster move from earlier this week before they were allowed).
Despite having ZERO saves, the New York Knights have charged into first place... :D
For players on the DL who have since been activated...
Remember, you must activate a player within 7 days of coming off the real-life DL, or they will be released to the waiver wire.
Consider this thread your official 7-day warning this season...
A.J. Burnett, Kings of Arbitration. Activated by Toronto 8/12. Will be released by commissioner if not activated by 8/20
Jason Giambi, Striking Back. Activated by Yankees 8/7. Will be released by commissioner if not activated by 8/20
Hope everyone is ready!
In this league, you cannot do add/drops until Opening Day -- otherwise known as "Free for All Day".
Waivers have been started, but any claims made prior to Opening Day -- which is Tuesday, March 25th -- will be reversed.
A day begins at 12:01am, by the clock in my living room (an atomic clock).
Now...time for sleep.
The Minor League draft will begin on Tuesday, April 1 at 9am Eastern Daylight Time.
Teams will have 12 hours to make picks.
Minor League rosters will be considered 'frozen' as of 5pm Eastern Daylight Time on Monday, March 31st. That means that if you promote a player from your mL roster to your active ML roster after that time, you will not receive an extra pick in the mL draft.
I will include a list of players on rosters who have mL eligibility so that they are not accidentally picked.
Use this thread to make your picks.
Picks should be in BOLD, 6 POINT FONT with the player's name, team and position.
For example: Danny Bosavage, Yankees, P
Players with Rookie Eligibility (50 IP, 130 AB) who are currently on rosters:
Adenhart, Nick SP ANA
Bailey, Homer SP CIN
The mL draft has ended.
You may now sign anyone you wish.
If you add someone to your mL roster, please send me a PM so I can adjust the contract
Once a player is activated off the DL (and makes an appearance) you have 7 days to move them to your active roster, or they will be dropped from your team...
Miguel Montero, Russell Peters Experiment, Activated 4/23/08. Since I just noticed him, he must be added to active roster by 5/7 or he will be dropped on 5/8. Dropped by Commissioner on 5/9
Matt Garza, Russell Peters Experiment, Activated 4/25/08. Since I just noticed him, he must be added to active roster by 5/7 or he will be dropped...
